US Vice-President Kamala Harris, in a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday (March 4) reaffirmed US opposition to an International Criminal Court (ICC) probe of possible war crimes in the Palestinian Territories, the White House said.
After President Biden ordered airstrikes in eastern Syria against an Iraqi militia on Thursday, comments from Vice President Kamala Harris and Press Secretary Jen Psaki on the Trump administration’s Syria airstrikes surfaced on Twitter.
Newly minted Vice President Kamala Harris swore in Georgia Sens. Jon Ossoff (D) and Raphael Warnock (D), who defeated Sens. David Perdue (R.) and Kelly Loeffler (R.) in Georgia’s runoff elections on Jan. 5.
Harris also swore in her successor as California senator, former California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who will hold the seat through the scheduled end of Harris’s term in 2022.
Vice President Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff made their way down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Executive Office Building, arriving at the office space adjacent to the White House at 4:10 p.m.
Harris made her way down the street shortly after President Biden arrived at the White House, surrounded by family. At one point, reporters could be heard shouting out questions about how she felt and what her first job is upon taking office.
„Just walking to work,“ Harris shouted back.
A glance at the Biden-Harris agency review teams should provide a rude awakening to anyone who believed a Biden administration could be “pushed to the left.”
A new day in America has come. Tune in as President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris address the nation.
Electoral fraud, sometimes referred to as election fraud, election manipulation or vote rigging, is illegal interference with the process of an election, either by increasing the vote share of the favored candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both.
States which had been projected to expect large Sanders wins, corresponded with raw data on exit polls confirming the expected Sanders wins.
Computerized vote counts however, showed very large Biden wins. The DNC accepted computer vote counts and CHANGED NUMBERS on exit polls to suggest that Biden won.
Democrats are feeling confident that 2020 will not be a repeat of 2016 and that polls showing Joe Biden with a comfortable lead over President Trump will not result in another nightmare for the party.
Trump’s 2016 upset of Hillary Clinton after polls showed the Democrats with a slender lead on Election Day lingers fresh in the minds of many Democrats.
Former vice president Joe Biden, meanwhile, is hosting a virtual “I Will Vote” concert, and his running mate, Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), is spending the day in Michigan. Harris participated in a drive-in church service and canvass kickoff event outside Detroit;
Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris participate in the vice presidential debate in Salt Lake City, UT.
Aber wo sind Joe Biden und Kamala Harris? Mit ihren Videobotschaften werden sie nichts erreichen, wenn gleichzeitig die Fernsehbilder den Präsidenten mit beiden Beinen in den abgebrannten Ruinen zeigen.
Harris has a record of going against the sovereign interests of California tribal nations. Many Native people haven’t forgotten the broken promises made by the Obama-Biden administration. Not only did the administration advance the Keystone XL Pipeline, but it also sat silently for months as Native people, accomplices and media were arrested, brutalized, and physically and sexually assaulted while trying to defeat the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). There are still Native people, such as Red Fawn Fallis, who are serving time for resisting DAPL.
However, in the past, Biden has supported fracking and the use of gas as a clean-burning fuel, a fact that scientists and environmental organizers have repeatedly disputed. The Democratic Party also dropped from its platform the proposal to end tax incentives for fossil fuels.
Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton speak with Aaron Maté about the virtual Democratic National Convention (DNC), and how the Democratic Party welcomes neoconservative war criminals and right-wing Republicans while attacking the left.
We also talk about Joe Biden choosing hawkish neoliberal „top cop“ Kamala Harris as his VP candidate. Then Aaron picks apart the new Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russia, and explains why the Russiagate conspiracy still won’t go away, even after it has been debunked.
The scaled-down, virtual convention will officially nominate Joe Biden for president and Kamala Harris for vice president.
Democrats kick off their nominating convention tomorrow night, and it’s going to be an unusual one – no crowds, all virtual speeches from remote locations.
Am Dienstag verkündete Joe Biden, er werde zu den Präsidentschaftswahlen im November mit Senatorin Kamala Harris aus Kalifornien als Vizekandidatin antreten. Insbesondere von vielen Liberalen wird die Wahl der charismatischen Harris mit indisch-jamaikanischen Wurzeln euphorisch gefeiert. Die Juristin bezeichnet sich selbst gerne als „progressive Strafverfolgerin“, doch ihre Geschichte als kalifornische Generalstaatsanwältin demontiert diesen hartnäckigen Mythos. Harris ist eine knallharte Law-and-Order-Politikerin und gehört zum Zentrum der Partei. Ihre Wahl verdeutlicht einmal mehr die pathologische Angst des Demokraten-Establishments vor allem, was auch nur im Ansatz nach links riechen könnte – sie besiegelt Trumps Wiederwahl. Von Jakob Reimann.
One of those questions came from Kat Wellman, a woman affiliated with the organization Democratic Majority for Israel (DMFI). Wellman asked if Harris would reenter or renegotiate the Iran Deal if elected president. While Harris condemned the Trump administration for violating the deal, she also made it clear that she would take a more aggressive stance than the Obama administration originally did. “We will reenter the agreement,” she said, “but also I will want to strengthen it. And that will mean extending the sunset provisions, including ballistic missile testing, and also increasing oversight.”
Not long after her election as California senator, but well before her presidential bid, Harris was the star performer at the powerful pro-Israel lobby’s 2017 Policy Conference, in a much-quoted appearance: “Having grown up in the Bay Area, I fondly remember those Jewish National Fund boxes that we would use to collect donations to plant trees for Israel,” she said at that conference, followed by a rapturous travelogue of a recent tour of Israel and the West Bank, which she visited with her Jewish husband, Doug Emhoff, whom she married in an interfaith ceremony in 2014.
US-Präsidentschaftsbewerber Joe Biden will mit Senatorin Kamala Harris ins Weiße Haus einziehen. Der Demokrat verkündete am Dienstag seine Wahl.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden named Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate on Tuesday, ending months of speculation over one of the most consequential decisions of his 2020 presidential bid.

Fox News confirms Kamala Harris will be dropping out of the 2020 presidential race.
Darunter sind Ex-Vizepräsident Joe Biden, die Senatorinnen Elizabeth Warren und Kamala Harris sowie ihr Kollege Bernie Sanders. Ihnen räumen Experten gegenwärtig mit die größten Chancen auf eine Kandidatur ein.
Sanders and Warren were the poll’s biggest gainers, picking up 5 points and 6 points, respectively, over the same poll from April.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is in fourth place at 8 percent support, followed by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 6 percent and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) at 3 percent.
The congresswoman from Hawaii received high praise for her performance at the Democratic debate on Wednesday, with some people even taking to social media to accuse tech giants like Twitter of purposely trying to block her popularity.
Harris says she’s proud of her record, „but I am deeply concerned about this record,“ said Gabbard. „There are too many examples to cite, but…she blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California. And she fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.“
Gabbard is right.
Contenders must reach two percent in at least four qualifying polls and secure 130,000 donors to qualify for debates in September — a high bar that only former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg have reached so far.
Have we learned nothing? Maybe not: If the media and the Democrats get any more defensive, they may disappear.
The poll shows Harris at 23%, Biden at 21% and Sanders at 18%. The difference between the candidates‘ numbers are within the poll’s margin of error.
Beyond the top three, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren sits at 16%.
Big-money Democratic donors have jumped off the sidelines of the presidential race, and three candidates are the clear winners of their support: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris.
Each of those three candidates received more than 220 donations from top fundraisers who helped raise at least $100,000 (and sometimes many multiples more) for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign or at least $50,000 for Barack Obama in 2012, according to a POLITICO analysis of Federal Election Commission data.
Overall, 24% say they back Biden, while 19% each support Sanders and Warren. The five-point margin between Biden and the two senators matches the survey’s margin of sampling error.
Behind this top tier, 10% support South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and 9% back California Sen. Kamala Harris. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke each registered 2% in the poll.
Biden 51%, Trump 42%
Sanders 50%, Trump 43%
Warren 48%, Trump 43%
Harris 45%, Trump 44%

Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses are now just more than six months away. The traditionally liberal voters at the caucuses would seem to be a fertile audience for Warren and Sanders, the two leading progressives in the race. But polls suggest Biden is in the running in Iowa, as is Harris, who has sought to appeal to both centrists and progressives with her campaign so far.
There’s only one takeaway from the new CNN-SSRS poll of the 2020 Democratic field: Joe Biden may not be the race’s front-runner for much longer.
12% of primary voters pick California senator as first choice for president, up 6 points from before debate
Nun haben die jungen demokratischen Stars Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez und eine temperamentvolle Kongressabgeordnete aus Minnesota, Ilhan Omar, plötzlich das Tabu gebrochen und gesagt, was nicht gesagt werden durfte: Es gibt zu viel rechtsextremen israelischen Einfluss und es muss Gerechtigkeit für Palästina geben.
Later Wednesday evening, Warren added herself to the list of candidates defending the freshman congresswoman.
„We have a moral duty to combat hateful ideologies in our own country and around the world — and that includes both anti-Semitism and Islamophobia,“ the Massachusetts Democrat said in a statement.
No thank you. Next, please.
(16.4.2018) Ten Democratic and Independent senators raised procedural or legal concerns while supporting military intervention on substance. Among them are rising stars in the so-called Democratic “resistance” to Trump—Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.)—both of whom aired concerns about the lack of authorization and legal rationale after the bombings had already taken place.
SAN FRANCISCO — With the growing recognition that prosecutors hold the keys to a fairer criminal justice system, the term “progressive prosecutor” has almost become trendy. This is how Senator Kamala Harris of California, a likely presidential candidate and a former prosecutor, describes herself.
But she’s not.
Every politician — every person — is a product of their own time and place. In the coming months, it looks quite possible that Kamala Harris might win Obama’s endorsement of her bid for president.
If she does, the comparisons between the two are likely to reignite. As with May and Kramp-Karrenbauer, those watching would do better to pay attention to the political landscape Harris is working within now, rather than any nostalgic connotations.
„I’m excited, you know why I’m excited, because the Democratic party we’ve been in the wilderness for the last few years and after the 2018 election, people are coming from all corners of the universe to say they want to toss their hat into the ring, so this is a good time to be a Democrat,“ the veteran Dem said.
